About Me

“WWJD- What Would Jesus Do!” “How am I supposed to pray about…”
These were two common statements from Christian clients while I was in private practice for 11 years in Texas. I specialized in working with families with children and adolescents. I wrote books and spoke at seminars to help teens and their families. I have worked at various churches as the children, youth, and young adult minister. I am even an ordained minister focused on a prayer ministry. My greatest satisfaction came from helping clients with a wide array of issues focused on making positive change happen.
Now, I am available online to help you change your life.
My diverse training allows us, together, to ascertain problems, develop goals, and set a realistic timeline for improvement. Each treatment plan is different for each client. My training as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Texas has allowed a deeper understanding of how you interact with those at home, at work, or at school. My "down-to-earth" conversations can even help your children or partner improve. My holistic approach can incorporate your religious values.
Let's talk about how we can change your life.
